um.......we'll. I'm old and I saw this movie when it first came out. I wiped it from my memory and now I remember why. Five stars for the memory trick and getting ANYONE to sit thru the soundtrack alone, never mind the visuals. Great laugh!

The greatest mystery about this film is how these major stars were roped into making it. Maybe the producer could only afford to pay them by skimping on writing and direction. I watched about half of it, until it became incomprehensible. Truly an amazing effort by someone totally clueless.

the utterly useless movie with some real stars including james mason and jeff bridges is nonetheless one of the worst efforts i have ever had the mind bending displeasure to see.
it is SO inept the only way to believe how bad it is to see it. but don't. a cowboy movie of the smallest budget would be better.
